The American thriller TV series, “Mr. Robot” has been rebooted for a second season on USA Network. The production is to begin shortly. The renewed season is constantly on the lookout for background talent. This time, the casting directors are seeking intimidating Chinese males to play the role of gangsters who are engaged in criminal activities.

About “Mr. Robot”

‘Mr. Robot’ centers on Elliot Anderson, a young security engineer in a cyber security company called Allsafe in New York City. He suffers from clinical depression and social anxiety disorder because of which he faces trouble socializing with people. He is delusional and paranoid, which affects his thinking process. Suffering from the ailment (which he fails to acknowledge), his only way of interacting with people is to hack into people’s accounts. This leads him to serve as a “cyber vigilante”. Quite mysteriously, he gets hired by an uncanny secretive rebellious anarchist called “Mr. Robot”. He is compelled to become a part of the team of activists called the fsociety. One such mission of the secret organization is to bring down the largest corporation in the world called as E Corp (which Elliot believes stands for Evil Corp) by cancelling all of its debt. The prestigious E Corp also happens to be the client of Allsafe – which Elliot has sworn to protect.
